GVC Top Ten: December 28th – January 3rd

Last week’s most watched games across Twitch, YouTube Gaming, and Facebook Gaming had some surprises. The viral Rust server shared by OfflineTV, Sodapoppin, xQcOW, and more launched the game into the top three after it was previously placed 32nd. Escape From Tarkov also skyrocketed up the charts to reach 2nd place and contesting the top spot with over 50M hours watched. However, Just Chatting remains dominant even in an off week. With that being said, the future for successful games may lie within collaborative servers for popular streamers. Similar to what was seen with Among Us where streamers would create private lobbies together, Rust is now in a position to generate substantial viewership for weeks to come if the creators continue with the server. It could be beneficial for new releases to utilize multiple streamers in a collaborative server effort to promote and help launch their game considering the successful case studies we’ve seen in the past year.
